Infrastructure architect Simon Thompson at the University of Birmingham talks about the challenges the facility has faced in the past, and the power-efficient and scaleable solution presented by a collaboration with business partner OCF and Lenovo.

In this video, Simon explains the type of long-term solution that the institution was looking for, and how Lenovo’s innovative water-cooling system not only increased their data centre’s air-cooling capacity dramatically, but also reduced cooling costs and enabled more compute when required.
